Joel will be working with Latino ministries in the Chicago area, primarily with Iglesia de la Resurrección. He will be doing outreach among the 6,000+ Latino students at College of Dupage, sharing the good news of Jesus and training those who become Christians in how to share their faith and guide others in Christian growth.
He will also be assisting with the ¡Caminemos Juntos! 2015 Conference this fall, which brings together church leaders from across the U.S. and Latin America.
From Miami, Florida, Joel has been immersed in Latino cultures for most of his life. He worked with Hope for Miami, helping to train churches and non-profit organizations for community outreach. He also did university campus ministry in Kampala, Uganda for over a year. He loves to dance salsa!
